GAME RECAP

Vincent Askew converted a key three-point play with 78 seconds left as the Portland Trail Blazers built a 31-point second-half advantage but had to hold on for a 117-105 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers.

Askew, a 63 percent free throw shooter, made all five of his attempts from the line in the contest. Gary Trent also was strong from the line, going 9-for-9 as Portland made 36-of-43 (84 percent) free throw attempts.

Isaiah Rider, who was not in the starting lineup after showing up late for the game, led Portland with 24 points -- all in the first three quarters. He scored 16 points in the third to help the Trail Blazers break the game open. But when sent to the bench at the start of the fourth quarter, Rider decided to go to the locker room instead and never returned.

"That is another story and we will deal with it tomorrow," said Trail Blazers coach Mike Dunleavy. "He didn't start tonight because he was late. When he did come in he did a nice job for us. Later when he came out, there were some words and I didn't know that he had left. We will deal with that tomorrow."

Trent added 19 points and Kenny Anderson had 17 for Portland, which broke the game open early in the third quarter when a basket by Arvydas Sabonis sparked a 12-0 run. Anderson's jumper capped the burst, which left the Trail Blazers ahead 70-56 with 9:19 to play.

Shaquille O'Neal led Los Angeles with 31 points and 12 rebounds and Kobe Bryant added 17 points, including 15 in the fourth quarter when Los Angeles used a 32-6 burst to draw within 108-103.

O'Neal also recorded his 10,000th career point, and despite two injury-plagued seasons, became the ninth-fastest to reach the plateau. He had 23 of his 31 points in the opening half and finished 12-of-26 from the field.

"I was a little tired tonight but I am not going to use that as an excuse," O'Neal said. "We had an awful third quarter and they went up by 20 or 30 points. I think if we had two more minutes we may have won the game."

Los Angeles, which was without starting guard Eddie Jones, who was suffering from the flu, got just nine points from starting forwards Rix Fox and Corie Blount. Fox and Blount combined to shoot 3-of-18 from the field as the Lakers were just 38-of-100 overall and 6-of-22 from three-point range.

After a three-pointer by Anderson gave Portland a 102-71 lead 1:40 into the fourth quarter, the Lakers began their comeback. Bryant was instrumental in the rally, scoring nine points in the burst, which left Los Angeles trailing 108-103 following a dunk by Mario Bennett with 2:25 to go.

A miss by Rasheed Wallace gave the Lakers a chance to inch closer, but O'Neal missed two shots in the paint. Trent missed on the other end but Derek Fisher missed a three-pointer. Askew's short jumper was off the mark, but he grabbed his own rebound and put back the miss. He made the free throw for a 111-103 lead and Trent followed with two free throws to seal the victory.

"We knew they were going to make a run," Anderson said. "But I think they were down to far to come back. They let Shaq get away with some things, but we held our composure."

Second-year forward Jermaine O'Neal had a career-high 10 rebounds and five blocks for Portland.

"The first half of the season wasn't as good as I wanted it to be," said O'Neal. "I promised myself and had a long talk with my family that I'm going to come out and try to outwork everybody."

The win snapped the Lakers' three-game winning streak and gave Portland a 2-1 advantage in the season series.
